I missed the originall or repeat broadcast of the Moon Landing with Walter anchoring, and missed the Nixon welcome back thing.

But if what you say ('bout Walter) is true, it's a good insight into his persona.

BTW, I went conservative in '68, living in Colorado that year, Nixon - I was just a young teenager but I thought Nixon was "the one".

Then back in California, the following year I attended a free screening at radical SF State (College) of Nixon's "Checkers" speech...
and all around me, students were snickering...
it altered me forever.

Insanity is contageous.

The clincher was seeing Monkey Business on the big screen in '69 (The Marx Bros. zany crazed classic, pure anarchy).

Never been the same since!

It's true about Walter talkin while Neil spoke those famous words...Walter and Eric Sevareid aka "The Grey Eminence" could not stand to be quite for a moment.

The Marx Brothers were great, but I've always had a thing for the 3 Stooges...

Nixon was a crook.

And selling out to China by shipping our jobs overseas, the start of deficit spending to hide the costs of war, domestic spying, dirty tricks, etc is a legacy that takes awhile to burn off.

Hmmm--do some homework on Tricky Dick and his time in CA.

Yes, I afraid he is guilty of much more than "charged with a crime".

This is a fact, and he admitted it. Fraud, libel, slander. Now, it is true that many folks, him first of all, few these CRIMINAL acts as "necessary evils" of campaigning, BUT do not for a minute think that he was not guilty of any number of such crimes.

I would think you would lionize these acts as what he and McCarthy had to do to stop the Yellow Menace...how on Earth could you be a supporter of Nixon and not agree with him that sometimes the ends justify the means?

He said that repeatedly.

You sir, are not fit to speak of Dick as a hero.

Nixon wouldn't make it through a GOP primary these days - he would be too liberal.
